Aim
The course provides knowledge of the control of electro-mechanical converters, such as rotating electrical machines, linear electric machines, loudspeakers etc by the use of power electronics energy converters.

Contents
Based on dynamic models of electrical machines and modulation methods for power electronic converters, control systems for position, speed, torque, flux, and current are developed. Practical aspects are emphasized in numerous laboratory sessions and simulation exercises. 5 home assignments containing calculus and simulation work covers the course curricula. The exercise hours are used for supervision of the home assignments.
